Seabrook

This banner of Harold Stanley Seabrook, Airforce, 1924 - 1944, adorned a light standard in Southampton as part of the inaugural commemorative banner project.

Once again this fall there will be commemorative banners around Saugeen Shores prior to Remembrance Day.

In a media release, the Town of Saugeen Shores Municipal Heritage Committee, in collaboration with the local legions, has established a continuing program that recognizes those who had lived in our community and who made the ultimate sacrifice in protecting our freedom.

Last year the group collected 39 pictures from WWI and WWII and the cenotaphs in our community include the names of those from Southampton, Port Elgin, Saugeen Township and
Saugeen First Nation who lost their lives during these wars.

There are still more than 40 names for which there are no pictures and committee members are hoping that family members will be able to provide pictures and also perhaps be willing to sponsor the banners.

For more information on this historic initiative, please contact the Town of Saugeen Shores Deputy Clerk Tracey Edwards at 519-832-2008 ext. 105 or by email at heritage@saugeenshores.ca.
